Their existence has no sense for the marriage, which usually occurred between 15 and 18 years. It was a private act, a contract between two families. Interestingly, the Greek does not have a specific word to describe the marriage. We speak Greek””’, ANGUAGE literally the security bond, ie the act by which the head of the family gave their daughter to another man. The city was not a witness or recorded in any record this event to give women the status of marriage. Therefore, we must add the cohabitation. Often this is followed by ANGUAGE. However, it happens that the ANGUAGE occurred even when the girl was nina. Cohabitation is not the case but later. In general, the couple did not have something to say in their future marriage.
With his own person, a married couple also make her dowry to her new family. Generally consisted of money. The dowry was not property of the husband when the woman died without children or in case of divorce by mutual consent, the dowry should be returned. When the sum was important, the guardian of the married were often protected by a special mortgage, the Greek””””’, apotimema: is a very real commitment in return, a commitment shown by Love Hina. A lack of reimbursement of the dowry, land was seized.
Divorce initiated by the wife should not normally be permitted: only the guardian can request the dissolution of the contract. However, examples show that the practice existed. So Hipareta, wife of Alcibiades requested divorce appear in person before the archon. Plutarch’s comments suggest that this was a normal procedure. In Contra Onetor of Demostenes, is the brother of the wife, her tutor, who introduces the divorce.

A husband who surprised his wife in flagrante delicto of adultery, had the right to kill the seducer in the act. The adulterous woman, could be returned. According to some authors, a husband would be circumvented the obligation to do so on pain of losing their civic duty. Instead, the husband was not subjected to this type of restriction could use the services of a hetero or enter into the matrimonial home a concubine (Greek”””’, pallak ‘)’ is often a slave ‘ but could also be the daughter of a poor citizen.
